SP - ATL
Mike Soroka has been placed on the IL with elbow soreness. This will end his 2022 season.
Soroka had really struggled in his last few rehab starts, and this elbow injury may explain why. This is no structural damage to the elbow, so he will look to be ready for the start of the 2023 season.
Mike Soroka (achillies) was activated from the 60-day IL and optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.
While Soroka was activated, he is still slated to continue his rehab assignment on Friday in Gwinnett. He wasn't particularly sharp in his last start and threw 75 pitches, so it makes sense that the Braves want to see a bit more before they bring him up. If all goes well Friday, he could make his way to Atlanta next week.
Mike Soroka is scheduled to make his third rehab start Saturday for Triple-A Gwinnett.
The results are not as important as Soroka’s health in these rehab starts. The 25-year-old last pitched in 2020 and had his last two seasons end due to Achilles injuries. Fantasy managers that have been holding onto Soroka may get a boost for their team when he returns.
Mike Soroka is scheduled to begin simulated games soon, per Braves manager Brian Snitker. As long as there are no setbacks, he would be working his way toward a rehab assignment.
Soroka has not pitched in a game for the Braves since 2020 as his last two seasons have ended due to Achilles injuries. As long as he has no setbacks, the 25-year-old could be a boost to a fantasy roster in need of pitching help when he returns.
Mike Soroka threw another bullpen session Monday at the Braves spring training complex in Florida.
Soroka was hit in the knee by a comebacker recently, so it's good to see him back on the mound throwing bullpens. He still has a lot of work to do having not pitched since 2020, but he could serve as a nice boost to any fantasy lineup when he does return.
